Korean Translators Ready to Serve You
While North Korea, known as the Hermit Kingdom, remains the world’s most isolated and impoverished nation, neighboring South Korea has built itself up remarkably from poverty in the 20th century to a highly developed economic powerhouse in the 21st century. The nation’s focus on education transformed the country from widespread illiteracy to one of the world’s largest exporters and a technological star on the international stage.
Though the South Korean economy is no longer growing at the rate it did between the 1960s and 1990s, it remains a major player on the global stage and an important destination for companies aiming for a slice of the Asian market. If your business is looking to dive into South Korea, professional Korean translation services are paramount, however. Though English is widely taught in South Korea, the major discrepancies between English and Korean render English difficult for Koreans, and thus, the only way to truly connect with a Korean audience is through the Korean language. At ProofreadingServices.com, high-quality Korean translation services are exactly what we offer.

More than 77 million people speak Korean, with around 50 million in South Korea, 25 million in North Korea, and the rest spread around the world in countries like Japan, Thailand, Singapore, Russia, and the US. Historically, Korean was written in borrowed Chinese characters called Hanja, with a phonetic Hangul alphabet later invented to aid in literacy, but in contemporary times, Hangul has almost completely replaced Hanja, with most Korean texts written only in Hangul but Hanja preserved in some scholarly papers.
Korean is remarkably different from English. It employs a subject-object-verb word order, although object-subject-verb is also possible, and the topic–comment structure differs strongly from English’s grammatical subject-based construction. Korean also marks a number of cases on nouns to express their grammatical role in a sentence. Perhaps Korean’s most complicated feature, however, is its strict honorific and politeness system, in which speakers must carefully consider the age and social status of their audience, as this can affect the vocabulary, verb forms, and even case markers used. The politeness system makes Korean difficult to translate accurately, which is why it’s so important to hire experienced, professional Korean translators like the ones on our team.
